We rolled out Team Riot’s picks for best books of 2016 a few weeks ago, and it was only fair to give you readers a chance to chime in! The votes are in, and these are the top 10.
- Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
- The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
- The Girls by Emma Cline
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
- A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
- The Mothers by Brit Bennett
- The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
- Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
- Evicted by Matthew Desmond
- The Nix by Nathan Hill
It’s always interesting to see how the staff and reader votes overlap–and don’t–and this list makes a pretty good snapshot of the year. What do you think?
